about this item

This book combines scholarly research with first-person interviews to examine the current state of women in Bosnia twenty years after the Balkan War—their emotional recovery, their economic situation, and their prospects for the future. It describes how two of the worst issues affecting Bosnian women today are domestic violence and trafficking. Both are being addressed successfully by Bosnian women’s organizations applying skills developed earlier in coping with ****** and war trauma. It shows how these organizations shoulder a societal load that various levels of government have no will or budget to address. It also shows how in parts of central Bosnia, feelings still run high between Christians and Muslims, and argues that ethnic hostility persists in rural areas, successful peace building should include ethnic song and dance as well as dialogue groups.
